I have created/mounted a new file system
I need to copy all the data from an old file system. Which command is the most efficient one? dd, cp or tar?
I know I can use cp as follows to copy everything from the source to the destination:
cp -r /source /destination
This seems taking very long time.
Should I use dd or tar?
I don't know much of dd.
I only used tar to tar files to/from tapes. don't know how to tar files from one file system to another. Can someone help?
Many thanks in advance,
